As all of Jayne Ann Krentz's books, this one is entertaining if a little predictable. However, the voices especially those for the older female characters are annoying. The male voice puts an exclamation on everything he says, which makes listening again annoying. I have listening to other books read by this male narrator and he reads all books the same. Needs to learn to put emphasis only when appropriate.
I have listened to hundreds of audio books and have never written a negative review about a narrator -- but this is the exception. The narration was grating and maddening. I don't know which was worse, the female narrator or the male. Both were equally bad. In fact, I almost stopped listening to the book after the first chapter. It's a good story, but almost isn't worth the horrible listen. Reading the book would have been a better choice this time.
I am an avid audio book listener and don't consider myself to be picky...but I just couldn't get past the female narrator. She ruined the book for me. Save your credits for something else.
I liked having both male and female narrators, but the audio quality was subpar. The woman's narration sounded crisp and clear, but the man's sounded like it was recorded over a bad phone line. It was really distracting during heavy dialogues between the main characters. It was hard to believe they were in the same space when the audio quality of the two voices was so different.
This story is great. I sew for a living so I listen to books over and over to pass the time. Unfortunately the female narrator in this story is so awful. As someone else said in their review, her regular voice is nice but her charter voices are so terrible. They grate on my nerves. I am actually going to write her name down so I make sure not to order another book she has read. Unfortunately, I already own a couple in my library.
I love Jayne Ann Krentz. Her stories are usually fun and interesting.
The story is good and the two narrators are excellent as they read by themselves and interact with each other.
Hard to pick just one memorable moment as the performance throughout was excellent.
They worked well delivering the dialogue with each other. They also did well narrating the other male and female voices.. Patrick G. Lawlor is the best male narrator I have ever listened to...he is really good. Franette is excellent as well.
I feel this book is quite good throughout.
If you like Jayne Ann Krentz books at all, this audio version is a winner.
I like Sofia Willingham from the Stark trilogy books.
Listen to other books instead
Did not enjoy their voices together ... Franette was stil ok but Patrick's voice was just dull. It just didn't do it for me. Sorry
